Dezeen Music Project: I Hate Everyone
Especially You by 800xL

This experimental electronica track by Newport producer 800xL is an unusual concoction of trippy sounds and rhythms that, in lesser hands, could easily have become an incoherent mess. In fact, 800xL manages to hold it all down with a wonderfully slow, deliberate and chilled-out bass that's worth listening to on a good pair of headphones to fully appreciate.

Dezeen Music Project: L'Eau Tonne
by Aimedeuxhaine

This disco-infused dance track by French producer Aimedeuxhaine is another release by online label Curious Absurdities. Brimming with soulful melodies and funky bass-lines, L'Eau Tonne has been skilfully put together. The track seems even more impressive when you consider that Aimedeuxhaine is just 17 years old.

L'Eau Tonne is taken from an eight track EP called Somed, which you can download for free here.

Dezeen Music Project: Grandma Got Groove
by It Takes Two To Tango

The fantastically mellow groove on this track by UK producer It Takes Two To Tango is as chilled-out as it is soulful. If French duo Air ever recorded a track with Bill Withers, this is what it would sound like.

Make sure you also check out It Takes Two To Tango's remix of Settle Down by Kimbra that we featured on Dezeen Music Project earlier in the year.

Dezeen Music Project: Amendment XVIII
by Fine Cut Bodies

Budapest producer and DJ Fine Cut Bodies has to be one of the most wonderfully eclectic artists we've featured on Dezeen Music Project. He's certainly not afraid of combining musical elements from whatever mix of genres takes his fancy. Amendment XVIII is a bass-heavy electronica track with the unmistakeable swing rhythm of jazz music. It shouldn't work, but somehow it does.

Check out the other Fine Cut Bodies tracks we've featured on Dezeen Music Project here.

Dezeen Music Project: Beeptweek
by Glen Lib

We used this quirky little electronica track by American designer and musician Glen Lib on today's video interview with east London designer Donna Wilson. We could only use a short segment in the movie, so here's the full track.

We're using the track on interviews with all the designers who contributed pieces to the Stepney Green Design Collection, including the interview with Phil Cuttance that we published on Dezeen on Friday. You can watch all the movies as we publish them here.

Make sure you also check out the other Glen Lib track that we featured on Dezeen Music Project, a bouncy, up-beat electronic pop song called Spider String.

Dezeen Music Project: Tokyo Feeling
by Jekka

This quirky electronic pop song by Moscow-based musician Jekka has a simple, repeating arpeggiated synth pattern at its base. It seems unremarkable at first, but transforms into the perfect counterpoint to Jekka's soaring, oddly melancholic vocals once she starts singing just under a minute in to the track.

Dezeen Music Project: Astro Dasher
by Trash Inc

Beirut producer Trash Inc always brings a smile to our face with his infectious brand of electro, and this brash, irresistibly funky track is no exception. With its cheesy sci-fi synths and sampled dialogue from cult 1950s movie Queen of Outer Space, Astro Dasher sounds like it's been beamed down by a spaceship from some zany CinemaScope vision of the future.

Dezeen Music Project: Electric Fizz
by Mykus, featuring Fruit Shoes

Here's another collaboration between UK producer Mykus and the singer Fruit Shoes, who are fast becoming Dezeen Music Project favourites. Just like their previous tracks Carrots and A Blemish, Electric Fizz is a glitchy mix of stuttering rhythms and mashed up samples that feels like it's on the verge of falling apart at any moment. It's a genuinely unique sound and well worth a listen.

If you like what you hear, make sure you check out the other tracks by Mykus and Fruit Shoes that we've featured on Dezeen Music Project so far.

Dezeen Music Project: Sharply Towards Hell
by Arms Were Youth

This is the first track that Australian electronic musician Arms Were Youth has sent to Dezeen Music Project, and we certainly like what we hear. Sharply Towards Hell is a buzzing, bubbling mixture of different textures and sounds that's disorientating at first but soon makes sense once your ear starts to pick out the individual rhythms and melodies that make up the track.

Dezeen Music Project: When You Start
by K H U S H I

East London musician K H U S H I is enjoying a seriously creative streak, bringing out a new track almost every week. We featured his first track on Dezeen Music Project earlier in the month, and this new one follows in a similar vein. Alternately soaring and intimate vocal melodies drive the song forward, with unshowy but effective keyboard and guitar parts providing backing and occasional embellishment.

If you like what you hear, make sure you check out other great tracks by K H U S H I on his Soundcloud page.
